This long-form ambient piece is a collaboration of Marco Lucchi with his son, Dario. Marco handles the electronic parts, and Dario contributes improvisations on his French Horn. The work as a whole warmly illustrates the idea of "repetition with variation" as familiar motifs rotate but there are changes.
"I found an - insoluble, indefinite - ear" was recorded as it was performed. In real-time, in Marco's home studio.
Marco describes the album as warm "like a fireplace" and suggests listening to it obliquely. Thematically this work is about the ear (you may recognize a certain sample about an ear from Blue Velvet), and a comparison is made between the french horn and the shape of the ear. The artist dedicates this work to Dale Lloyd (http://www.and-oar.org/artists_lloyd.html), a musician he admires very much.

A precious jewel
How lovable, how sweet, how deep! Brings you very far away, where beauty meets cruelty, like in David Lynch's movies. Thank you so much, Marco Lucchi!

and i am enjoying the Blue Velvet sample very much also.
Playing this very LOUD makes all the marble click sounds and the deeper sounds entwine nicely.
